Kate Middleton and husband Prince William are said to have spent £1 million on renovations to their plush Westminster abode, Kensington Palace’s Apartment 1A, ahead of the birth of the royal baby in July.
The heavily pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, who is expecting to welcome her first child into the world on July 13, has been preparing the building’s exclusive 21-room apartment with husband Will for life with their newborn, splashing the cash on getting the lavish property baby-ready ahead of their tiny royal arrival.
Buckingham Palace’s annual accounts revealed yesterday that the couple have blown £600,000 on heating, electric and water refurbishments and £400,000 on roof repairs for their London home. Well, only the best for the future monarchy, right? The luxury pad, which contains staff quarters and a nursery, hasn’t been updated since the sixties, so we reckon Kate and Wills’ pre-baby makeover is long overdue!
Their newly-decorated Palace apartment is scheduled to be ready for Kate, Wills and their royal bundle to move into by the Autumn. Meanwhile, the couple are planning on staying at Kate’s parent’s house in Berkshire in the months following the royal baby birth.
In other exciting K-Middy news, it’s been revealed that we should be getting our first glimpse of the little one on the steps of St. Mary’s hospital just days after Kate goes into labour. Woo!
These two sure know how to keep their fans happy…
